First Day of Preschool!

Alexis had her very first day of preschool yesterday! I was a little worried about it just because she's been a little clingy lately but she did just fine. She goes again tomorrow and is excited about it. Today she is going over to her friend Simone's house to play and I'm actually just going to drop her off and her mom will bring her home later. This will be the first time I've just left her at a friend's house without staying myself. I'm sure she will be on her best behavior. She's always much better behaved for other people!

We have siding!

Chris spent the entire weekend last weekend siding the front of the house. It looks amazing. He just took the kids to get paint so they can start that part. Not sure how well a 2 and 4 year old can paint, but I figure we can always just paint over whatever they do if it looks terrible.

Alexis also had her preschool orientation yesterday. It went okay. She got really hungry after about an hour so we had to leave so she could eat. I told her she has got to eat breakfast before school, but I can't blame her for not wanting to. Neither Chris or I have ever been big breakfast eaters. I've been worried all this time about how Luke will react with Sissy gone, but he did fine. She was more sad to leave him!
Both kids are doing great. Luke is talking up a storm and so active. It's hard to believe he's only 2. He can easily keep up with Alexis and the bigger kids.
The first 2 pictures are of when we bought the house 5.5 years ago. The next are what it looked like with the front door moved to it's new location. The last ones are of the siding and the kids helping paint it. Once we are done with this project we will have pretty much changed everything in the house. We started by replacing all the windows, got new carpet in all but 2 bedrooms and completely redid the bathroom and kitchen. We are now adding a bathroom (where the house is now closed in where the front door used to be), adding a laundry room and converting the garage to a living/playroom. Oh, we're also adding a fireplace. I can't wait til it's all done. It will be like having a new house
